    I'm having an animation problem:

    When i fire a weapon initialy the plasma blast sprite seems to ghost a little, creating the impression that the ship has fired twice, the ghosting gradually resolves itself and by about half way up the screen it looks ok again.

    When i slowed the frame rate down to have a closer look the problem evaporated.

    You can see the effect on my latest build here (the problem is especially noticeable with the blue plasma rings):

    If the problem was that my code isn't running fast enough i would have expected the frame rate to drop, yet that hasn't happened...... *puzzled*.

    Cool! I always loved this type of game. Looks really good.

    At one point I picked up some yellow item and then was unable to fire. Is this supposed to happen for some reason?

    Fun!

    I turned the sound off, it that version, it was bugging me because i had to continually make changes to the code then restart the game.
